There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Lightbulb memorization of search-words

It is a pity that every time limewire is starting up again, i have to type the search words of possibly 20 keywords which found no result last time!
Why does such a simple feature not exist in limewire: remember my previous searches!

Thanx for your suggestions!

PS: another p2p program for mac named "nicotine", on the soulseek network, is obviously able to remember searches... but I dont know yet how to make nicotine work properly - on mac os x 10.4 at least, it requires the X11 feature installed, from the mac os x installation cd).

Default Nicotine, Phex, Frostwire?? Best results?

Thank you for your reply, Mr. Only A Hobo!

Do you know how to use this p2p Nicotine program, it appears a bit strange to me, since I am not used to this sub-platform using X11 on mac os x 10.4 (unix or linux?)?

Or do you instead recommend to try those other p2p programs (for mac?) that you are listing like Phex and Frostwire, which I have never heard of?

Obviously friends having PC's with Emule, or other popular p2p programs (for PC) get many more results than me on mac with limewire pro!
Are those other p2p programs using another network than gnutella?

Got download links?

Thanx! :-)

Only A Hobo is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

jmb I know nothing of Nicotine, but have been tempted to look at Poisoned when I get round to it. ( nice names eh!) Nor do I quite know what X11 is all about.

I guess you know this site which supplies Poisoned also.

Reading a bit on Nicotine, it appears to be a dubious application for Panther, which rules me out. I also notice it works on Soul-Seek Network, which is an unknown quantity to me. Poisoned on the other hand will operate on different networks, and AFAIK if the only ... or certainly one of very few ... mac applications to do this.

Limewire is under a certain ammount of pressure to introduce a block on copyrighted files, and for this reason Frostwire has been introduced. It is currently identical to Limewire to all intents and purposes. It will remain free of restrictions however if and when Limewire introduces them.

Phex is a nice application, a bit more complicated to use, but like Limewire/Frostwire, a Java based Gnutella network client.
It seems to me to access areas of the network that Limewire does not and so using the two I get a pretty good search field for rarer files.

In conclusion, I think Poisoned must be worth a try.

Morb is flying high

I just create a notepad document with a list of common keywords I want to search for on a regular basis. Or even when limewire isn't running and I want to search for something I write a list that I want to search for. So when I start I just highlight the keyword in notepad CTRL-C (copy) then CTRL-V (paste) into the search window as I have limewire and the notepad windows side by side. I can get a dozen in 30 seconds. That's my method.
I do that more for remembering what I want to search for. I'm not that lazy that I can't type.

ukbobboy01 will become famous soon enough

Good idea Morb

Still though, I would prefer if LW had a "Save" function, like a word processor, where you could save your best search terms.

Default Hollywood poisoned...

Good-good, let's get poisoned! And see if we will survive!
Could be interesting if Phex is accessing areas of the Gnutella network that Limewire isn't...

Limewire is maybe getting to selfcensor its great research tool getting culture a bit more democratic, even though there are new ways be found to make those many great artist make a living of their art.

In some culture-friendly countries like France, the VAT on cultural products is lowered to give access to most people. I think that it's a shame when books, cd's, Dvd's, film-tickets have such high tax rates!
I don't like the idea of giving access to culture and information only a richer elite. But most commonly the raw truth...

I have heard of the Soulseek network (which should be accessible with Nicotine on mac)... where you can give priviledged access to friends around the world, so they can download from your database quicker than the other peers. But Nicotine's interface is a bit complicated for me.

And talking about the popular p2p for PC, Emule & Edonkey, I just looked through the free web encyclopedia,
and found out that a version for mac is available! It is called Amule, and seems to be equipped with many more complex control options than Limewire, and also the "Buddy" privilege option. Maybe worth a try!

I will try to find those rare files I cant find on Limewire. Usually vintage files, much more difficult to find than the last Hollywood **** that everybody eats with popcorn, and flushes away in the toilet next day.
Consumption, sometimes entertainment... Rarely art. At least not from the tired cliché Hollywood machine.

Cheers! ;-)
